Trees are recognized for their tremendous contribution to our environment. Unfortunately, trees growing in the wrong place have the potential to threaten the reliability of one of the most important commodities upon which our modern society is dependent that being your electric service. Electric utilities have long recognized trees as the leading cause for unplanned service interruptions, including both sustained duration outages and momentary interruptions. Trees growing in and around electric facilities can cause electrical faults and impede access to facilities when emergency or routine repairs are required. Trees also provide an environment conducive to squirrels and raccoons, which are another common cause of electric service interruptions.
Most important, however, is the safety of the general public, utility personnel that may be compromised by trees too close to energized equipment and lines.
Jackson County REMC is dedicated to providing you, our member, with safe, reliable, uninterrupted electric service. With your help, cooperation, and assistance our goal becomes more achievable when we work together.
